KYLE MARTELL WINS A WILD SEASON OPENING BICKNELL TOUR EVENT FOR SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS AT THUNDER MOUNTAIN FOR 1ST CAREER TOUR WIN


 
By Mike Leone | June 9, 2017 

(Knox Dale, PA)... The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance headed to Thunder Mountain Speedway on Friday night. It was the opening event on the 2017 Bicknell Racing Products Touring Series schedule and the first ever Tour appearance at 3/8-mile oval located south of Brookville, Pa. Twenty-six cars turned out from all over western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio on a very weather threatening night.

Kyle Martell survived a wild season opening Bicknell Touring Series feature event to be credited with the rain-shortened 22-lap victory. The 2016 "Futures Cup" Champion led for the majority of the race until Rocky Kugel and Brian Schaffer got by late in the event. Schaffer and Kugel then tangled before a rain shower moved over the speedway, and Martell was awarded the $800 victory and also named the Maxima Racing Oil "Maximum Performance" award winner.

We are here now and there is plenty of availability for patients.

All services are provided at no cost to the patient.

“Cattaraugus County ranks 60 out of 62 counties in New York in terms of quality of population health,” said RAM founder and President Stan Brock. “This is the first clinic we’ve ever done in New York. If we continue to see there is a need in surrounding areas, it may be an area we are in more frequently. RAM goes wherever there is a need.”

Area health care providers, such as Olean General Hospital’s Gundlah Dental Clinic, Olean Medical Group, and the Cattaraugus County Health Department, will be on site to share information about medical services they already provide for the region’s underinsured.

This local support of the RAM clinic will ensure patients gain knowledge of existing area programs, have access to future resources, and can receive follow-up care.

Regional support for the clinic includes University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and School of Nursing, Eighth District Dental Society, NYS Dental Society, and Optometrist Society.

The UB “Smiles To Go” dental van, a 42-foot-long, state-of-the-art dental clinic housed within a tractor trailer, will also be on site for additional patient support. The van is equipped with three dental chairs, an X-ray imaging machine, a sanitization center and more.

“For more than 15 years, the UB School of Dental Medicine has provided much needed dental services to the children of Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Allegany and Livingston counties. This important event now brings much needed dental service to persons of all ages living in Western New York, We are hopeful this public and private effort will serve as a springboard for developing new and sustainable programs,” said Stephen N. Abel, DDS, associate dean for student, community and professional initiatives in UB’s School of Dental Medicine.

RAM clinics require a large community effort, including assistance from local police, emergency medical technicians, local church groups, clubs, health departments, local businesses and individuals.

For the past 32 years, Remote Area Medical and its corps of 100,000 volunteers have treated close to 700,000 individuals, delivering more than $112 million in free medical services.

Medical services at the St. Bonaventure clinic will include dental cleanings, dental fillings, dental extractions, eye exams, eyeglass prescriptions, eyeglass production, free eyeglasses, women's health exams, assistance device (walkers and canes) education, osteopathic manipulative treatment and general medical exams.

Bridge Replacement Near Chrystal To Close Eleven Mile Road In Potter County Starting June 15th

Box Culvert Replacement Set to Start June 15 in Potter County. Detour will be in place June 15 through July 7.

Coudersport, PA – Beginning June 15, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will be working to replace a box culvert on Eleven Mile Road (Route 4023) in Oswayo Township, Potter County. The box culvert spans Eleven Mile Creek near the village of Chrystal. Replacement work will require closing the bridge and a detour will be in effect for the duration of the project, June 15 through July 7.

Official detour signing will direct drivers to use Routes 4023 (Eleven Mile Creek Road), 4025 (Brizzie Hollow Road), 244, and 44. PennDOT will re-open the box culvert and roadway before July 7 if work progress allows.

Replacement will allow PennDOT to remove the bridge from Potter County’s structurally deficient list and remove the weight postings of 27-tons for single vehicles and 28-tons for combination vehicles. The current 25-foot box culvert dates from 1931 and carries an average of 250 vehicles daily.

The project will be a cooperative effort between PennDOT Potter County Maintenance and contractor L. C. Whitford Company, Inc. of Wellsville, New York. Work items will include excavation, removal of the existing box culvert, placement of the new box culvert, back-filling for the new box culvert, concrete work, and paving. All work is weather dependent.

Drivers are reminded to follow detour signing, use caution in and around work zones, and always buckle up.

Initial cutting was performed on three properties. Followup cutting was done at our Sweden Township demonstration location.

We will perform the final cutting for the season in early July. This will be followed by chemical application. Spot checking and followup spraying will be performed by our applicator.

Thanks to our volunteers without which this program wouldn't be possible. Public awareness is slowly building in regards to this
invasive pest.

Public Meeting Friday On Alcohol, Drug Abuse Services

An Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs Advisory Board serves in a consulting role to Potter County Human Services in the delivery of prevention and treatment programs. Additional members are needed to give the board a broader cross-section of experience, viewpoints and expertise. The field has been changing dramatically in recent times with the growing abuse of prescription drugs, increased incidents of heroin use and other trends. At the same time, misinformation that diminishes the potential negative effects of marijuana use has rapidly spread as part of policy debates over issues such as legalization and medical applications.

Next board meeting is scheduled for noon on Friday, June 9, at Kaytee’s Restaurant in Coudersport. Board meetings are open to the public. To volunteer or learn more, contact Potter County Human Services at (814) 544-7315.

‘Cleaning Up Potter County’ Showing Results

Potter County Today
Potter County is scoring some major wins in its concerted effort to eliminate unsafe, environmentally unsound and illegal dumpsites. A 2011 study that identified 56 dump sites in the county spread over 22 municipalities got the ball rolling.

Funding fell into place three years later when the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company worked out an $800,000 settlement for environmental violations during the company’s construction of a pipeline in the region. Some of that money was reserved for remediating illegal dumpsites.

Over the past two years, the Potter County Conservation District has partnered with the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC), Potter County Solid Waste Authority and DEP to clean 30 sites throughout the county. Some 2.8 tons of trash and close to 150 tires have been removed.

Among the sites addressed so far were dumping areas off Pinneo Road near Oswayo, along Pine Creek in Galeton and the Old Colesburg Road in Coudersport. Volunteers have come from the LEEK Hunting and Mountain Preserve, Upper Allegheny Watershed Association, Galeton VFW Post 6611, Galeton Area School and Potter County Probation, among others. Inmates from the Potter County Jail have also taken part.

Four more Potter County sites could see work this year once teams of volunteers and/or community organizations are engaged. They’re located along Rt. 44 in Eulalia Township, Loucks Mill Road in Hector Township, Rowley Road in Bingham Township, and Burleson Avenue in Roulette Township.

More than 20 other sites that have been identified still need to be addressed. To volunteer or report an illegal dumpsite, contact PEC at 570-718-6507.
